Selena Quintanilla-Perez, the late “Queen of Tejano Music,” is getting her own hologram, according to an announcement that was made on her official Facebook page. The late singer’s sister, Suzette Quintanilla, confirmed the news to Billboard.
Named “Selena The One,” it is being referred to as a “walking, talking, singing, and dancing, digital embodiment” of the Mexican American icon.
According to the statement, this hologram of sorts “will release new songs and videos, will collaborate with current hit artists, and aims to go on tour in 2018.”
Acrovirt, LLC, which was involved in the projection of the Tupac hologram at Coachella in 2012, is the Nevada-based company behind the “Selena The One” project.
“Selena is a Latin American icon who was taken before her time. Acrovirt and the Quintanilla family are excited to announce that Selena will continue to share her creative talents with the world in a new innovative way.” Acrovirt co-founder Terry Kennedy said in a statement.
The site SelenaTheOne.com states that an IndieGoGo campaign aims to raise $500,000 in support of its creation.
